Belvedere Cottage

Built approximately 1870, the cottage was originally the coach house for Belvedere House and was subsequently split into two cottages. Having been subject to a sensitive refurbishment and reconfiguration, the cottage benefits from having both characterful and modern comforts. The property has been comprehensively refurbished including new electrical, plumbing and heating installations along with new kitchens and bathrooms. The ground floor has natural stone flooring throughout with underfloor heating and refurbished old wooden floorboards.

A superb open plan living space is focused around a double-sided wood burning stove that separates the kitchen/dining room and sitting room. The property has been fitted with wooden-framed double-glazed windows and doors throughout and retains a wide array of original features such as stripped pine doors whilst all three double bedrooms have period fireplaces (currently sealed).

St Lawrence is an idyllic location with a beautiful, rustic coastline and many impressive coastal and country walks directly from the doorstep. Woody Bay and Binnel Bay can both be reached within 10 minutes on foot. Old Park Road enjoys a particularly quiet, picturesque location within the village, yet is only a short walk from the village grocery shop. The neighbouring town of Ventnor provides various amenities, such as individual shops, a doctor’s surgery, an array of fine eateries and a superb, sheltered beach. This area is renowned for having a warm and sunny micro-climate with the Ventnor Botanic Garden nearby.
